Tuivasa-Sheck arrives on world stage

NRL.com caught up with our very own World Cup star, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, this week to discuss the young winger's rapid rise from Roosters rookie to Kiwi international starring on the world stage in just twelve months...


Twelve months ago, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck rocked up in France as the shy teenager hes always been. This week, however, he arrived as a fully-fledged Test player he was always going to be.


As reward for taking out the Roosters Rookie of the Year award last season, the club flew Tuivasa-Sheck and his mother for their first ever trip to Europe.


We did a lot of day tours, first in London and then in Paris, with other small places in between. So you could say Im something of a local, Tuivasa-Sheck joked to NRL.com.


But its weird. Some of the boys knew that I came here last year. But now Im here again, its like Ive never been here before. Every place is different when youre in camp.


If you told me last year that Id be playing for the Kiwis right now, Id think you were trying to play a trick on me or something. I wouldnt have believed you.
